I'm a huge snacker. I don't think that it's much of a surprise that my family is all about food and we all LOVE to snack. In fact, sometimes, snacks trump lunch. And dinner.
But lately I've been trying to get us to snack smarter and healthier. We love Cheez-Its and all things crunch related but it can be hard finding things we all like to eat that taste good and are still good for us.
Enter Sally's Smart flavored almond snacks. We were offered the opportunity to try out four types of their flavored almonds: Key Lime+ Jalepeno, Lemon, Orange Ginger and Raspberry Viniagrette
I was excited as I've recently gotten into almonds and love them in a good salad but hadn't really tried them all on their own.
When the box arrived we wasted no time in breaking into them and took the opportunity to try out each flavor on it's own. Even the super picky Sweet Pea tried them. That ladies and gentleman was a magical moment. She's not a fan of nuts so I was surprised she was into it.
When we tried the orange ginger I wasn't prepared for the full on burst of flavor that happened. I was cooking and my husband handed me one to taste and I just happily accepted. Talk about a flavor explosion! The ginger is both subtle and bright while the orange is just light enough to not be overpowering. I'm already thinking up ways I can incorporate these into dinner as well as just have them for snacks.
All in all these are definitely something I would recommend to anyone who likes almonds and is looking for healthier snack alternatives. They offer a great crunch factor and the flavor profiles are tantalizing to say the least. The fact that these almonds are infused with flavor and there's no residue that will rub off on your hands just makes them an ideal on the go type snack. But as I stated above, there are also plenty of ways to incorporate them into everyday dishes as well.
Thanks Sally's Smart for the opportunity to expose my family to a fun new healthy option!
